  • developing a better life

    so i decided to start this journal bec.i have been reading journals lately and i like the idea
    here is a brief outline of myself:
    1)im not so outgoing , u could say shy
    2) when im with my friends however im very crazy and talktive
    3) i love anything that raises my adrenalin
    4) love cooking and baking(bt nt alot of that nw :d)
    5) i LOVE the primal lifestyle

    i have always been into sports , i played basketball,tennis,karate,speedball(although i dnt consider it asport ), swimming, and of course pole.vault
    i was a national and international athlete in pole vaulting , gt thord world under 16 bt i stopped bec i foumd i dnt enjoy the sport and life is to short ,i nw play crossfit which i really enjoy and i won first in egypt crossfit tpurnement but i mobed to canada so pooking to compete here

    weight has always been an issue , i guess due to my parents habits when i was a kid :/ bt at 14 ywars old i was at a good weight bt my coach kept telling me i have to lose like 8 kilo so that put in my head that im fatand i started obsessing so as a result i actually gained 10kilo for sometime i had bulimia trying toblose them back and i was HIIT traiming for 3 hours a day for 2 monthes :/ until i stumbled upon MDA and that was the best day ofy life

    i went cold turkey right away andy bulumia stopped , i was eating the foods i loved, bt in the beginning i was afraid to add fats and i kept adding them gradually until i noticed that tuw weight was coming off i tried ketosis for a while bt it wasnt fun nw i eat more balanved meals which i love , and gradually thw fat is comiing off nw i can see my abs and my serratus anterior muscles when i flex
    im currently at 24% body fat i hope to reach 16% i dnt care how long it takes as long as i get thwre

    there is no food to post yet bec im fasting for religious reasons bt ill post my" breakfast" in tue evening

    hope it wasnt too long this is as simplified as i can put it :d

        when im with my friends however im very crazy and talktive
        Haha That's great ! I really envy you that - sometimes I'm really boring and can't find a good contact even with my friends..

        love cooking and baking(bt nt alot of that nw :d)
        i LOVE the primal lifestyle
        I'm waiting for pics of things you baked! : 3 Primal lifestyle is the best way to spend our lives, I'm sure you know it. It's great that we have all started eating and moving like GROKS in such a young age!

        i was a national and international athlete in pole vaulting , gt thord world under 16 bt i stopped bec i foumd i dnt enjoy the sport and life is to short ,i nw play crossfit which i really enjoy and i won first in egypt crossfit tpurnement but i mobed to canada so pooking to compete here
        *.* international athlete? WOW.. You seem to be really in great form : ) Keep it up!

        nw i eat more balanved meals which i love , and gradually thw fat is comiing off nw i can see my abs and my serratus anterior muscles when i flex
        im currently at 24% body fat i hope to reach 16% i dnt care how long it takes as long as i get thwre
        And that's the right way! Don't listen to other people - you should just see what your body wants to eat and after which foods you feel comfortable : ) I keep my fingers crossed for you! Just eat whole foods, move and have fun --> and you will soon reach your goals!

        Best wishes from Poland! <3

            Today I went shopping with my mom for 2 hours it was all walking and since I'm talking this week as rest from training I was happy about that

            I gt some bone marrow and was hoping to make a patch for the first time bt I failed miserably bec I put it on very high heat so it all melted bt np ill just save all the fat and mabye use it as butter

            After I got home I started making dinner it was very quick since we were ganna break our fast after an hour
            So this is wat I came up with
            Pear, salad , chicken leg there were ganna be mixed veggies bt they didn't get cooked in time and we were all full at the end so we'll have to freeze it up I had the whole bowl of salad and one of the huge delicious legs soooo full right nw and I'm so happy bec tom is EID and we r having a huge gathering us muslims in toronto , much fun awaits !!!

              Pleasure to meet you, EgyptianGrok! (Can I call you EG for short, or will that get confusing whenever I pull out an example, e.g, right now )

              You sound a bit like me in terms of personality, and a tad bit amazing too in terms of sport! Third in the world? Bloody hell, that's impressive.

              I get the feeling it's going to be a real pleasure talking to you.

              The bolded text here alarms, EGrok.

              You've confessed in the past that "weight" has been an issue, and now you are worrying about body fat percentage - or at the very least, have set a goal to decrease it? Why, at your age, would you want to cut your body fat% from a relatively lean and comfortable (not to mention, attractive) 24% to a on-stage bodybuilding level of 16%?!

              I'd like you to please ask yourself something:
              At 16% body fat, will you be happy?

              I don't mean to come off overly critical here - I believe that what ebrady said above was amazing advice - to concentrate less on the numbers and percentages, and instead, how you feel about yourself. Stop worrying about numbers of any kind, be it weight, body fat percentage or calories or whatever and concentrate on important things. Which are, I don't know, teenage girl things?:
              • Graduating from high school with good marks
              • Getting a drivers license.
              • Succeeding in fitness (non-aesthetic) related goals.
              • Finding a boy/man who loves and cares about you.
              • Choosing a career.

              ^I don't know if any of these things appeal to you (Can confirm have never been a teenage girl ), but I'd say they should probably take a bit more priority in your life over reaching 16% body fat no matter the cost... Let me assure you, these things are undoubtedly worth so much more.

                    .Today I woke up SOOOOO refreshed
                    I just noticed that my sleepng has improved llike crazy since I became primal again, I was insomniac bt nw every night is like heaven

                    Anywho... I went to EID prayer I wasnt hungry in the morning bt I was craving aPEAR ?? So I took one and went to pray . While we were on our way back my family and I we found an apple tree so we oicked some up and I had like 3 since they were so tiny and I mean tiny first time I see an apple that size bt damn they were soooo sweet !!

                    When I came home at 1 pm I had lunch which is in the photo
                    It was a chicken leg and thigh leftover from yest and the leftover veggies mainly carrots broccoli and cauliflower with 50 ml of coconut milk?? Tbsp of butter and tbsp of bone marrow fat from yest
                    It was heavenly and lunch is usually my biggest meal bec I dnt really have breakie

                    Heading of now to the EID festival and probably ill update when I get back

                          So simple & epic meal! It really looks amazing Good job!

                          im a coffeeholic like all three of u
                          Dark power of coffee... : ) I understand you really well. I can't imagine world without that sweet smell and beautiful black colour... Whats your favourite coffee type (arabica/robusta/mix) ? Have you ever tried bulletproof coffee?

                          I love anthropology! Anyway good luck with your test, but I think it won't be a big problem, as your English is quite ok!

                          today was around 1200 cal
                          Wow.. That's pretty small amount of energy... Are you sure you don't need some MOAR?

                          Have a good night!

                              Yest I had trouble getting to sleep for like 20 min bec there was no wind coming from the window and I cant sleep except if there is air circulating in the room bt still better than my hours of suffering before primal

                              I woke up refreshed though and had a pear at home and coffee from tim horton on my way to school , drank it in class #swag

                              I had a cappuccino with a shot of vanilla and a packet of splenda Ik ik no judging its the one habit I need to get rid of damn splenda !!
                              And the coffee wasnt soo hard core I like that in the afternoon bec stomach problems in the morning
                              In 15 min im ganna go to the gym and I decided to video tape it so more on that later, have a nice one guys
